What You Can Do As a Patient

If you have been diagnosed with or have one or more of the following painful conditions, optimization of posture can markedly reduce this pain and the need for other treatment such as medication, physical therapy, injections with steroids or anesthetics, manual manipulation or surgery (initial or repeated).

Common conditions which typically respond to this treatment include:

  1. osteoarthritis, psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis;
  2. chronically (greater than 3 months) herniated intervertebral disc;
  3. carpal tunnel syndrome;
  4. muscle cramps not due to insufficient circulation or side effects from blood pressure medication;
  5. painful condition of the feet from any of the following: plantar fascitis, hammer toes, Morton's neuroma, heel spur, tendonitis, bunion, excessive callus, or ingrown toenails;
  6. numbness or weakness of the arms, hands, fingers, thighs, legs, feet or toes not due to disease, such as diabetes;
  7. degenerative changes of any joint that has not progressed to the point of being "bone on bone"
  8. tension headaches;
  9. temporomandibular joint pain;
  10. spinal stenosis;
  11. failure to recover from previous trauma; and
  12. spinal scoliosis of either unknown or postural origin.

If you have one or more of the above listed conditions, print the synopsis of this method and show it to your physician or therapist. Request that you either be referred to someone who can provide you this service, or that your physician take this weekend Course to learn this method and subsequently provide this needed service for you and other patients. Remember, we providers of health care work for you. You, the boss, can request this new service.
